Application statistics

At Manchester, we aim to be completely transparent about our selection processes. We regularly receive requests for quantitative information about the various stages, and as such we have provided a series of summary statistics for the previous five admissions cycles below.

These figures are strictly for information only and should not be used to try to predict future application cycles or determine an application strategy. Applicants are advised to use the information available to them throughout the rest of this website or to contact us directly to determine their eligibility to apply.

Application numbers

The following two tables contain details of the number of applications received, as well as the number of interview invitations and offers issued over the course of the previous five admissions cycles for both the five-year and six-year MBChB Medicine courses.
